About the Churchill Arts Council


Oats Park Art Center, Fallon, Nev.

The Churchill Arts Council was founded in 1986 and began conducting artists’ residencies in the schools and presenting performing arts events that same year. Over the last three-plus decades our programming has grown to become an ongoing forum for the exploration of a wide range of creative ideas including: an annual performing arts series; visual art exhibitions; literary readings and conversations with artists in all disciplines; screenings of classic and foreign films; a juried local artists’ exhibition; scholarships to pursue studies in the arts; publication of print and online visual arts catalogs as well as a monthly newsletter and other educational-informational materials. We also actively participate in a number of organizations dedicated to enhancing the development of the arts statewide. Funding for CAC programs and activities has been received from a diverse range of public and private sources including the Andy Warhol Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, the Nevada Arts Council, the Nevada Commission on Tourism, the Western States Arts Federation, the City of Fallon, Churchill County, and many private foundations, local businesses and individuals.
